Health Australia

This working paper from the National Centre for Epidemiology & Population Health investigates the extent to which health care has contributed to the decline in mortality rates in Australia over recent decades

by examining trends in avoidable mortality between 1968 and 2001. Avoidable mortality refers to deaths from certain conditions that are considered to be largely avoidable given timely and effective health care.
